Let’s get this out of the way right at the top. I lost .2 of a pound today. I really thought it would be more. I guess my sluggish behavior over the week-end didn’t help. Maybe I overdid the lasagna and chocolate fondue. At least it was in the right direction!!
Have you noticed that Marie Osmond is everywhere lately? I get such a kick out of her on Dancing With the Stars. I think she is doing amazingly well. I have fond memories of my girls sitting in front of the TV, watching the Donny and Marie show. They absolutely loved it. I once met Marie at a business convention. Her is the proof:
We were having a contest to see who had the biggest smile!! She obviously won in the eye makeup department. I am guessing that this was about 22 years ago.
A couple of weeks ago, my friend Diane sent me an e-mail with questions to answer. I was to forward it to and copy it to her. Here are the questions and my answers:

The reason I am posting this, is the question — two things you want very badly. Well, obviously, I didn’t get an end to the war in Iraq. You guessed it — Maryama came knocking at my door looking for houses to clean. After some negotiating with Mr C, she will be coming every other week. She spent most of today getting us up to health code. She is coming back tomorrow to do the kitchen. After this, she hopes it will not take as much time. She is extremely thorough.
The thing I like most about a cleaning person is that I am forced to get my stuff organized and put away. Mr C hates that part. And when he did the “cleaning”, I never knew when the bug would hit him so I had a hard time getting my clutter out of the way.
I must end this and settle down for the start of the new season of “Project Runway.” Love, love, love!!
